I have been doing some extensive research into buying a DVD player over the last week and I have come to the conclusion that no player will make everyone happy. The Panasonic RP56 was looking to be my next player, as I am now mostly concerned with Picture Quality over DVD-A or SACD. After reading some reviews, I have found that the RP56 has a good picture--but is noisy, has slow layer changes, can't scale non-anamorphic DVDs and has an ugly face. The Sony NS700P, and most other players, have the Chroma bug. Toshibas have a nice zoom feature, but some people say the picture isn't as good as some others. JVC has had some good buzz. (Sound&Vision liked the S60--is it impossible to find now?) Con: Weak video mode. Pioneer 440 has terrible progressive picture quality according to several DVD shoot-out type reviews I read. I was pretty happy with my old interlaced Pioneer DV-333 on my Wega 36XBR450. Does that mean that I'll be happy with pretty much any player out there? Sometimes I think it would be so much easier to be J6P and just go buy something recommended by a salesperson.
